more than what john mccain had in 2008. latinos are the largest minority group in the united states. 23.7 million are eligible to vote in this election. that is a record but turnout is traditionally lower for this minority than white or black voters overall. some churches are working to turn out the latino and african american vote bypassing out voter registration cards in battle ground states and asking people to promise to participate in caravans to get souls to the polls on election day. and since latinos are not likely to vote for mitt romney it is not stopping him from trying to win them over. he is going to honor the temporary work permits that allow young people to stay in the country. we're back in just a minute. what not to wear. >>and now to my point. that is a whole bunch of bunk! the powerful my steal an election but they cannot steal democracy.
